TOG stands for ‘Thermal Overall Grade’, which is a unit of measurement used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product, usually in the textile industry.
Our sleep garments are given a TOG rating according to the warmth they provide. Basically the higher the TOG, the warmer the product.
To help parents understand which TOG values are right for differing room temperatures, a set of guidelines has been established as per below:
- 0.2 TOG – ideal for room temperatures between 75°F and 81°F
- 1.0 TOG – ideal for room temperatures between 68°F to 75°F
- 2.5 TOG – ideal for room temperatures between 61°F to 68°F
- 3.5 TOG – ideal for room temperatures below 61°F
The table below provides you with guidelines around how to dress your baby based on the room temperature. The table is only a guide. All babies are different. The number of clothing layers may vary according to a baby’s health, their physiology & the temperature in the room. The care-giver must determine what is suitable.
It is important to check your baby regularly to ensure that they are comfortable and that they do not overheat. For additional temperature and dressing guidelines, please click here.
